#4 of 157 Speciality lodging in Cefalu
A small, comfortable, fully-equipped apartment for you to enjoy an unforgettable holiday in the heart of wonderful Cefalu, which has been visited for centuries by travelers from all over the world. Our apartment is located in the town square in front of the extraordinary Arab-Norman Cathedral, one of the architectural jewels of Sicily. From here it is possible to walk to the Mandralisca Museum, which hosts a famous painting by Antonello da Messina; to start a walk up La Rocca, the hill overlooking the town from where a breathtaking view of the coast from Palermo to Messina can be enjoyed; or to go for a swim in the clear, blue sea near the picturesque local fishermen's port, along the street of the shopping. From Cefalu it is easy to travel by train to Palermo; to the magnificent Madonie Mountains and their nature park; to all the main sites of Western Sicily (Agrigento, Piazza Armerina, Catania, Taormina and the volcano Mount Etna) with organized trips or with public buses; and also to the unique Aeolian Islands. Our apartment is on the first floor of Palazzo Villelmi, which dates back to the 15th century and still has a simple corner window from that period with a little column in the middle. It is a valuable document of the bourgeoisie taste from the Renaissance, showing also the signs of an inscription on its arch. The apartment is composed of 2 beautiful balconies overlooking the main square, living room with kitchenette, bathroom with shower, single bedroom, double bedroom in the loft and a sofa bed in the living room.

Beautiful apartment. Bright and beautifully furnished . We loved the colours and the quirkiness of the place . The rooms are upstairs and situated in a fantastic way. The only thing is if you are limited in mobility the bedrooms are upstairs and the bathroom is downstairs. Fantastic location right by the cathedral and 5mins to walk to the beautiful beach . Friendly lady who showed us the apartment. Lovely balcony from which you can see the central square . Amazingly it is very quiet in the evenings as the area clears of people quite early. Highly recommend it .

We had an amazing sunset cruise around the town of Cefalù in the Tyrrhenian Sea. The captain and crew were funny and generous and made our evening so special. We were able to take a swim in the crystal clear blue water and watched in awe as the sun set over the town of Santa Lucia and into the horizon. Make sure you add this to your list of things to do in Cefalù!!

Amazing service from Angela and Guiseppe. From arrival to access to apartment and then continued interaction during our stay, service was excellent. Located in central square means easy access to restaurants and a five minute walk to the beach. Comfortable beds, lovely balcony and great feeling of comfort. So glad we stayed here.

We stayed five nights at the beginning of August. The town was buzzing and we were right in the middle of it. Piazza Duomo was the place to be, and still close to cafes, restaurants and short stroll to the beach. Beautiful people and small town atmosphere. Angela was very helpful from arrival to departure. Go to Cefalu and enjoy one of their apartments.
